Saturday's Stupid Saying

Question on BBC One's Test The Nation: Who was Winston Churchill-a rapper, US president, the PM, or king?

Miss Great Britain 2006 Danielle Lloyd: Wasn't he the first black president of America? There's a statue of him near me-that's black.

On Miss Great Britain, sharp as hell...

Prayers Needed:
If you've been following my updates on Face Book, you know the person I consider my other little sister is currently undergoing intense invasive chemo treatments for her melanoma. I woke up Thursday to a scary update; she'd had trouble breathing during the night, and the doctors were going to cut short her treatments.

Then yesterday, she was doing well and even getting demanding...and K isn't the demanding sort! One of her friends joked to her husband to 'watch out; this side effect might last a long time!"

This morning, I was scrolling through the updates and saw she'd had a bad night again. Around 2am, they'd moved her into the cardiac ICU, with fluid in her lungs. And just after I posted it to my wall, and offered up a prayer, I clicked over to her brother's wall to send him a message. He had just updated she'd pulled through, but the docs were keeping her one more day. She's due to go home tomorrow, to be with her family.

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers? She's only 41; she'll be 42 next month, and is the mother of a 10 and almost 7 year old. Way too young to have their mother taken from them.

Thanks everyone:) Her husband posted this morning she's feeling MUCH better, although won't be able to go home between chemo rounds, which sucks.
